I have been dabbling in programming for quite a while over the last few months, I have a really good feel for algorithm and how my programs need to be structured, but I have generally lost interest when it comes to syntax I have used a good E-book but I find "classroom" style teaching really boring and dis interesting. I am using purely c++ console code.
I have a few projects that I want to work on but I do not have the ability to complete them on my own, I am looking for someone who can guide me into being a fundamentally solid programmer as-well as being able to write code for me and break down what everything in that code does, why they selected certain structure/syntax over another (So yeah, more fundamental work!)
I am also open to different teaching techniques if you feel you have an effective and engaging way of teaching, just in my mind I feel the best way to do that is by working on something that is actually useful to me as a finished product while learning along the way.
I have a project I had paid to be worked on (well over 60 hours) previously by a college kid who ended up ditching it at 90% once he had made enough money to purchase his monitor, then telling me he would finish the project if I pay 300% hourly increase...... so I would like that project to be completed/rebuilt with me.
As you can tell from the previous statement I have absolutely zero time / interest in people that think its fine to agree upon a rate and try to put the squeeze on once a project is near completion, its highly unprofessional.
Be available for 4-5 hours a week minimum (Although this does not guarantee I will need you for 4-5 hours per week)
Have a very clear and concise way of relaying information (I would rather have a lower level ability tutor who articulates himself/herself very well over a high level wiz kid who cannot explain their decision making)
Have a good microphone (if you feel verbal lessons + screen sharing is the best approach)
Bonus, but not requirements:
Future projects will involve needing experience in the following:
Querying SQL databases
I am using Windows (VS2k12), I am not overly concerned about cross platform compatibility yet so using Windows API etc is not a problem for me.
